Spring Cleaning: Makeup
Spring is a good time to clean the house, change your clothes, and prepare for spring and summer. It’s also a good time to check your makeup kit, add new colourful eye shadows and get rid of the products that have expired, or simply don’t work well on your skin. Be sure not to ignore the expiration date on cosmetic products; otherwise you run the risk of infection and irritation. 
Let’s take a look at the life expectancy of skin care and makeup products:

Mascara
You probably use it often, so it’s important to know that you should throw it away if it has been more than three months after you opened it, otherwise you risk a nasty eye infection. Mascara and eyeliner are very sensitive products, so it is best to change them every three months even if you haven’t used all of the product.

Powder
Powders last longer, approximately three years. If they are older than this they begin to go dull, and dry - they won’t go on smoothly and you may get a patchy application.

Primer
Primer allows for your makeup to last longer, apply better, keeps oil production in check and camouflages small imperfections. It doesn’t last more than two years, so you shouldn’t worry in applying it every time under makeup.        

Eye Shadows
Coloured eye shadows last about two years, but there are so many new colours and textures on the market every season that it would be a pity not to introduce new eye shadows every season to change things up. 

Lipstick
A lipstick’s life is between two and four years, depending on the ingredients contained. Generally, if it’s more than two years, you can tell by the smell if it’s still good or not.

Brushes
It is important to clean your brushes on a regular bases. Makeup brushes can become coated not only with makeup residue, but also with body oils and dead skin, making them havens for bacteria that will decrease the life of your brush, negatively affect the proper application of makeup and can also cause skin problems and possible infection. Check your brushes every 6 months. If they look worn out, they need to be replaced.

Want the look of faux eye lashes without irritating your eyes? 
Here’s the lowdown on fibre mascaras (aka ‘sculpting fibre’) that promise to deliver the look of false lashes without the mess:
They contain a high amount of nylon, silk or rayon micro-fibres that attach onto your lashes, giving you that longer, fuller look. Some come mixed directly into your mascara; others are separate and need to go on in layers in between coats of mascara. The upside is that they do create length and volume superior to that of a regular mascara. 
If you have sensitive eyes or wear contacts, however, these same fibres can fall into your eyes and create a mess of issues.
One of our favourite mascaras is one that is safe and gentle, yet delivers what it promises - Long and thick lashes that will not flake off - Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening & Lengthening Mascara.

For more info on Jane Iredale mineral makeup products click here. 

This dual-purpose formula contains sea minerals that condition lashes so they can grow to their fullest potential, while thousands of cellulose fibers coat the lashes for a look that’s glamorous, rich and full. The extra large, tapered brush makes application easy and separates lashes effortlessly.
• Packaged in a squeezable tube with the highest quality brush
• Contains 75% more product than normal mascaras
• Conditions lashes so they don’t clump, flake or break
Tip: When Longest Lash Lengthening Mascara is initially used, it may feel drier than other mascaras. This is because the normal water content has been replaced with algae extracts. The power of the extracts is what nourishes and conditions the lashes.

10 Must Have Beauty Products for a Flawless Look
Etiket Makeup Expert, Ariane Lemire shares her tips on achieving flawless skin. 
Flawless skin starts with healthy skin. If you are cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating regularly, then you are off to a very good start and will allow for the products in your beauty arsenal to work most effectively.
Take a look at your makeup bag. What’s inside?
Perhaps you have an overwhelming selection of products, when in fact, you only use four or five everyday. It can be difficult to decide what you need most, but there are certain key items that can help ensure skin is smooth, imperfections are diminished and your best features are maximized.
1. A good moisturizer suited to your skin type
A good moisturizer is a must for flawless skin because it preps the skin for makeup application and creates a smooth and hydrated look to your skin. 
Must Have: SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture
2. Foundation or tinted moisturizer with SPF
To create a smooth and even toned complexion, you need a good foundation base that fits your skin type. Gone are the days of heavy paint-like foundations. “Skin Care Makeup” that also protects the skin from the damaging rays of the sun is both beneficial and time saving. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 , Amazing Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 or Dream Tint SPF 15
3. Concealer
Achieving a flawless complexion can be helped with a good concealer. However, covering the problem is not enough. Choose a concealer that addresses and corrects both temporary imperfections (blemishes and dark under eye circles) and long standing skin concerns like rosacea and hyperpigmentation. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Under-Eye Concealer or Disappear with Green Tea Extract
4. Natural Hair foundation brush and a high quality sponge
Your makeup application tools are just as important as the products themselves. Certain brushes work better with certain foundations. Natural hand-tied brushes work best with mineral powder foundations to ensure even coverage. Professional high quality, latex-free, non-allergenic and odor free sponges provide for a flawless finish when using liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale The Handi Brush or Chisel Powder Brush and Beauty Blender Sponge
5. Gel blush
Natural faces with a touch of colour was a common sight on the Spring 2012 runways, from Michael Kors to Burberry. This means that gel blushes are a must for this season. Gel blushes are easy to apply, gives a pop of colour to the cheeks and keeps the skin looking smooth and luminous. 
Must Have: Per-féct Cheek Perfection Gel
6. Lip Scrub and Lip Balm
Keeping your lips looking smooth, supple and youthful requires regular maintenance, especially in the winter. Exfoliation helps to remove dry, dead skin while naturally plumping your pout. Follow with a rich, glossy and hydrating lip balm. 
Must Have: Sara Happ Lip Scrub and Lip Slip
7. Brow Gel
Well groomed brows can make or break a flawless look. They are the focal point of your face, so keep your brow shape as natural as possible and use a good brow gel to keep them conditioned, tinted and in place. 
Must Have: Per-féct Brow Perfection Gel
8. Safe Self-Tanner
Traditional methods of tanning are no longer an option. Harmful UV rays from the sun are dangerous and speed up the natural aging process dramatically. Luckily, there are some safe alternatives to achieving that sun-kissed glow. Choose a self-tanner that combines serious skin care benefits with a touch of self-tan to gradually build colour every day. 
Must Have: St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Face
9. Portable and easy to apply SPF protection
Weather you are hitting the beach, the slopes or driving around town, SPF protection is vital to maintaining a flawless look. Sun damage can appear at any age, so protect your skin at all times to avoid wrinkles, rough texture, hyperpigmentation, and spots. 
Must Have: Tocca SPF 30+ Towelette Multipack
10. Hydrating mist
Hydrating mists are great to have around any time of the year. Keep one in your beauty bag or purse to set your makeup or hydrate and refresh your skin mid-day. Choose a facial spritz that contains ingredients to help calm the skin and fight free radicals. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale D20 Hydration Spray

Jane Iredale: How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Why clean your makeup brushes?

There are three big reasons for doing so.

The first is that dirty makeup brushes don’t perform as well.  This can cause your makeup application to turn out looking very different than you expected: darker, more intense, or just plain muddy.

The second reason to wash your brushes is that dirty brushes can transfer bacteria from our skin to our makeup products and back again. Cleaning your brushes regularly will ensure that you not only get rid of excess product but also bacteria and oils that have been transferred to your brush.

That’s where we come to the third reason: caring for your brushes actually helps them to last longer. Brushes are a big investment, so we should be doing our best to protect them.

How to Clean Your Brushes

    • Use warm water to saturate the brush hairs only. Be sure not to soak your brush as this will ruin it.
    • Place a pea-sized amount of Truly Pure Shampoo & Conditioner (see photo below), or any mild shampoo, into the palm of your hand and massage the cleanser into the hair. Do this until the cleanser has been completely dispersed among the brush hairs.
    • Rinse the brush thoroughly until the water runs clear.
    • Repeat as necessary.
    • Create a ring with your index finger and thumb and pull the brush through the fingers while applying gentle pressure to remove excess water and maintain the brushes shape.
    • Place on a towel and lay flat to dry. Never dry your brush in an upright position as this will loosen the glue that binds the brushes and lead to hair loss.

    Truly Pure Shampoo & Conditioner - Available at Etiket

    This is all you need. 

    With a first career in television and film Jane Iredale, who’s makeup line I LOVE, learned first hand the importance of healthy skin and healthy looking skin. Her cosmetics are created to actually be GOOD to your skin and good FOR your skin.  They are totally non-comedogenic and even the concealer is loaded with vitamins and moisture.

    Everyday I use these items after cleansing and moisturizing.  (More on that later.)

    Now, go ahead, you can do it. Natural minerals, vitamins, none of the bad stuff. And when you get the right color, you’ll look totally natural, like you have nothing on. Go on then.
